A House Away from Home

One of the most UNIQUE & GREAT things about Smith is that HOUSES replace typical college dorms. The Princeton Review declared Smith #1 in the category "Dorms Like Palaces" and #7 in the category "Best Quality of Life."

Town & Country magazine ranked Smith #14 in the country for best college dorms

“Scales for me is my home away from home. I love how my house community& some of my closest friends are my next door neighbors.” -Sophomore Nikkiah
Smith has 35 different houses that range from 10-100 students living in them

“After a day of classes, homework & practice I loved walking back to my house because it really was my home away from home, with all my best friends only a few doors away. The big sib-litte sib relationships within the house are awesome & extremely helpful as an underclassman trying to navigate all of what is Smith College” -Senior Mandy

“I believe the housing system at Smith is truly one of the best college housing systems in the country! As a first and now second year I have enjoyed the luxury of not only having not a single, but also an amazing house community. Each house at Smith has its own unique atmosphere and traditions. I live in Morrow House, located in the Quad, and almost every day some sort of community-building activity is happening. Whether it is watching the premiere of TV shows in the living room, eating dinner together in our pescatarian/vegetarian dining hall accompanied by juke box music, or getting house brunch together on Mountain day—there’s always some kind of cool house bonding activities happening!" - Sophomore Erin Hanley
